Naama: So Emo

Fandom musings pt. Nth

Finished with the second season of BtVS today. There were a few episodes I hadn't seen at all, even though it was toward the end of the third season that the show got canceled here. And I think I actually like being on the late train; while a certain thrill of anticipation is gone, there is the chance of watching a story unfold from the context of a whole. And I know that I have an entirely different perspective now than I did at seventeen. The episode where Angel discovers Buffy's school notebooks with the 'Buffy+Angel 4ever' etcetera scribbled on them - back then I probably would have scoffed or snorted at that, but now I'll get a real sense of tragic out of it. There is a very different understanding.
